HEAD OF CHRIST. ( A Study foi the Las> t Supper.) . Erera Gallery Milan. Iff GRATEFUL REMEMBRANCE FOREWORD. OUT of religion, which may be broadly defined as the stronger elements of the human soul, concentrating first in fear, then in superstition, and finally in faith, has mainly sprung not only such art as the world knows to-day, but much that is lost for ever. It is but the natural law of progression the law that set the stars in their courses that the fear of ages ago, which first implanted a god in the breast of primeval man, should have passed through the fiery furnace of superstition finally to triumph as the faith which is the corner-stone of the Christian religion. The subject of the Christ is thus un-5 6 FOREWORD. doubtedly the greatest that has ever en tered into the domain of Art. As proof of its importance, and of the high service to religion of its handmaiden, Art, in the Christian cycles, there has never been, and never can be, a greatest picture of the Sa viour, one on which the verdict of all Time will be united, but a series of them. Those representations which have best satisfied the ideal of their time belong in this cate gory. The present brochure is simply a brief effort to set down in order some of the attempts that have been made, under varying degrees of inspiration and influ ence, to picture the Saviour and His life work.

Since the dawn of Christianity, artists have been fascinated and stirred by the figure of Christ. His likeness appears in frescoes on the walls of catacombs that date from Roman times; he is featured in the stained glass windows of Gothic churches; and he can be found in various forms in today's pop culture.

His likeness appears in frescoes on the walls of catacombs that date from Roman times; he is featured in the stained glass windows of Gothic churches; and he can be found in various forms in today's pop culture. The Biblical Saviour is not a static, immaterial deity: Christ's mortal birth, unusual life and dramatic death make him an accessible subject for religious and secular artists alike. Whether they show the spirituality of God Incarnate or the earthly characteristics of a flesh-and-blood man, artistic depictions of Christ are the most controversial, moving or inspirational examples of religious art. This richly illustrated book explores the various ways that Christ is rendered in art, from Cimabue's Nativity scenes and Fra Angelico's paintings of the Crucifixion to the provocative portraits of Salvador Dalí and Andres Serrano. Author Joseph Lewis French guides the reader through the most iconic representations of Christ in art - tender or graphic, classical or bizarre, these images of the Messiah reveal the diverse roles of the Son of God in the social milieus and personal lives of the artists.
